Susan Paskewitz is chair of the Department of Entomology and director of the Upper Midwestern Center of Excellence for Vector-Borne Disease. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention awarded $10 million to a consortium of Midwestern university to establish the research and training program to stem the spread of disease carried by vectors like ticks and mosquitoes.

Paskewitz’s research program centers on medically important arthropods, including ticks and mosquitoes, and the human pathogens they transmit.  She teaches classes in global health and medical entomology and her research laboratory group works on problems of local and global health impacts.  Her current projects include and ecological/epidemiological work that targets disease reduction.  She is especially interested in: ecology and epidemiology of arthropod-borne disease in Wisconsin, outreach on mosquito and tick-borne disease and prevention.
